Samsung's ChatON will work across platforms such as Android, iOS, Blackberry and Samsung's Bada OS, unlike competitors Blackberry with BBM or Apple's upcoming iMessages. ChatON will support one-on-one discussions as well as group messaging, it will also support standard text-based messages as well as images and even simple animations.

This is another step in the mobile messaging solution, where there are a fair amount of competitors and action happening. Blackberry BBM, iMessages launching from Apple soon, Skype acquired GroupMe, Facebook recently purchased Beluga, another cross-platform group messaging app. It seems as though group messaging is the latest trend to launch into.
